I'm not sure if the museum was undergoing renovation, but while we visited there was only a small exhibition of the siege of Sarajevo and one about cultural vandalism during the civil war. Everything was very patriotic, not contextulizing or trying to make us understand...More

Bosnia and Herzegovina, a country that has such a diverse and interesting history, this museum could do so much better. It still is a must-visit site for everyone interested in history.

The exhibition on the siege of Sarajevo on the first floor is reasonable with good photographs and some decent artefacts but it does suffer from lack of communication in other languages. I'm sure that Bosnians get a lot more from it than do foreigners. The...More

A museum that has interesting exhibits and story to tell . The exhibition on the Jewish families in Bosnia is really good. Lots of reading or you can get it all on your phone

An interesting museum with articles that explain the siege of Sarajevo. Not a long visit but certainly worth visiting for an insight into the more recent history.
